Tape Measures

A tape measure is a long length of plastic, steel or stainless steel marked off with measurements along the full length. These measurements are both in metric (centimetres and metres) and imperial (inches and feet).
Most tapes are flexible, which allow the tape to measure around the curves and enabling it to be rolled up and easily carried.
Our Tape Measures Guide provides information about the types available on the market, as well as their different applications.

Tape measures used in carpentry or construction industries often use a stiff, curved metallic tape that can remain stiff and straight when extended. The tape can be retracted into a coil for convenient storage.
Flexible measuring tapes are intended for use in tailoring or dressmaking. Known as a ’sewing tape’, these types are made from fibreglass, which does not tear or stretch.
